noise ! give it up for maria cardona, senior adviser from hillary clinton's 2008 campaign. she's on cnn. give it up for maria cardona. ♪ >> gracias. buenos tardes. allso happy to be here with of you at this historic event. this is a way to stand up for climate change. thank you to 350.org, nrdc, and teh sierra club, and all of you making this powerful rally possible. for our children, our future, we must do more for climate change. just a few short years ago, the environmental issues did not really register with latinos as a constant concern. times have changed and that has changed. that has changed, sadly, because we have seen the detrimental effect of toxins in our air and water and what it does to our families and their children. unfortunately, latino communities, families, and all the communities in this country are suffering from this. they may not disproportionately live in communities where their air and water have been poisoned, our children have as much. we live. we breathe, we play in these places that have been poisoned by these toxins. to the president's statement, we do n
question. i was on cnn about two weeks ago on a sunday morning show. and she asked us about drone strikes. quite surprise demri. stan is the former commander of special operations. we said threrp lawful and effective and appropriate but we are in a safer position as a nation now. the threat of imminence is not quite is same as we perceived it in 2002 or three or four. and therefore the secondary evkets of this kind of activity may now begin to outweigh the sought after primary effects which is to reduce the level of threat. >> the political blow back. >> the political blow back where it's happening and political blow back with our allies. political blow back to what examples we are giving to the rest of the planet. >> should with be doing less of this? >> my view is this is always a balance and these are individual operational decision that is my sense is the secondary and third effects are beginning to have a lot more throw weight than they did. >> the new secretary of defense, the president's new national security team. >> don't throw this tool away, keep it in your kit and use it wisel
of cnn who together have a wonderful interview with clinton yesterday. thank you. over to elise. [applause] we have a lot of distinguished guests in the audience. the deputy chief of mission for the embassy of lebanon. a lot of people who care about syria and looks to be a lively discussion this evening. in august, 2011 secretary of state hillary clinton called for the president bashar al-assad to step down for the sake of the syrian people. at that time about 2,000 people were killed. today that number of u.n. estimates has risen to more than 60,000 syrian is dead, hundreds of thousands of refugees have fled to turkey and jordan and iraq pleasing burdens on those countries, close to 2 million more, more than half have been displaced inside syria. what started as a brave stand has moved into a civil war with opposition forces becoming more radicalized, some of them would say infiltrated by extremist forces with links to al qaeda. the conflict threatens to destabilize the entire region and become a battleground for the proxy war some might say of competing interest. the and ratio
qaeda, unquote. one many explained to me over tea in the capital last month. another told cnn after a failed strike, quote, i would not be surprised if 100 tribesmen joined al qaeda as a result of the latest drone mistake, unquote. rather than promote the author of a failing strategy, we need a c.i.a. director who will halt the agency's creeping militarization and restore it to what it does best. i would say what it did best at one time. collecting human intelligence. it's an intelligence agency, not a lightweight version of joint special operations command. and until america wins the intelligence war, missiles will continue to hit the wrong targets, kill too many civilians, and drive young men into waiting arms of our enemies. without accurate on the ground intelligence, our policies will fail, george w. bush launched two major ground invasions, and mr. obama has tried several smaller wars, neither strategy has worked. in yemen, which has been the laboratory for mr. obama's shadow wars, aqap has more than tripled in size after three years of drone strikes. when the united states st
, that is a critical priority. we have heard both former c.i.a. director michael hayden in an interview on cnn and a general say that it is now changed and that the impact of those strikes is creating a backlash. for example, it was said that the unmanned strikes is greater than the what they can appreciate. they are hated on a visceral level. he add the targeted killings add to the presence of american arrogance. he said this adds to the perception of americans that said we can fly where we want, we do what we want because we can. general hayden also has expressed concerns that now that the strikes are being used at lower levels, arguably, that they are creating a backlash that is undermining the credibility of government and creating new terrorists when a neighbor or family member is killed in the course of the operations. do you agree with general mcchrystal and director hayden about the backlash of strikes from the targeted killings at this point? i am not talking about the initial strikes. >> that is something that we need to be mindful of in terms of reaction, any type of u.s. counter-te
. [indiscernible] >> we will start with cnn's gary, thank you. the vast majority of top security officials in the previous administration supported army circassian the rebels. were you briefed about this plan when you were in the senate, and what do you think about the plan proved the you think is time to start army the rebels? you think the mixed messages coming from iran, the foreign minister, and the president have said they would be open to talks with iran. the foreign minister had some nice, it's to say about you, but the supreme leader said direct talks are not possible. do you think there are prospects for a deal, and the you have a plan to move this forward? >> that was three questions. >> 1 + one does not equal two. >> b well done, i am impressed.
